Traditional Catholic Vacation Bible School

I want to encourage all  of you who are reading this blog to start a TCVBS or Traditional Catholic Vacation Bible School.  Most Vacation Bible Schools use protestant generic materials with a few Catholic things tacked on.  I know because we would have one every summer at St. Patricks in Ripon California.  We always purchased the kit from Liguori Press.  Protestants would lend us their art work for the same VBS they had already completed, and of course without the Catholic components.

cropped-copy-vbs_header_wp3You could always tell the videos where protestant with the “new generic christianity” (which is really just anti-christ “truth”).  We love Jesus and each other, but let us not believe in anything that could cause controversy, like Catholic beliefs.  The anti-christ will teach that all religions are good and that we have to accept all religions as true religions.  One world order with a one world religion of peace and love (unless you may not agree with “all religions are true religions”).

So what does it take.  First find a priest who is willing to begin every morning with the Holy Latin Mass.  Then find some good young volunteers.  Come up with a schedule and materials with which to do the traditional Catholic teachings with.   Other than Holy Mass and Holy Rosary, the boys and girls are separate and have their own schedules.  Everyone is asked to come nicely dressed.  Girls dresses/skirts, boys long pants and collared shirts.

It is a great deal of time and hard work, but these young men and women and children are our future.  It is so wonderful to be traditional Catholics.
